The one and only Purr-fect Miss Pussy Galore. Recognizable, well spoken, seductive, assured, naughty but nice and rather mischievous.
I represented Honor Blackman for over 20 years, From the early days at London Management when she would pop in for a chat, always utterly beautifully coiffured. She literally lit up my tiny yellow office. I loved her visits. She had so many stories to tell and with that voice I literally sat mesmerized listening. She was very funny and had such a mischievous sense of humour. I have so many fond and funny memories of her and after having a good old weep, we’ve been remembering them all and giggling.
She visited once before a lunch and was having trouble with her eyelashes so asked to borrow a paperclip and sat throughout our chat separating them with it. She often pretended not to understand my Hull accent, and when booking audiobooks to record in Bath, she loved asking me over and over “where am I recording it?”. It only made me repeat Bath in and even stronger Northern accent, until I gave in and said “BAAAAARTH DAHHHHHLING” .
Its been an absolute privilege to know and represent Honor, a feminine force to be reckoned with, and we will miss her massively, What a Lady, What an Icon. Rest in Peace Honor x
